When i tried to email agent.exe, it didnt get thru my ISP's outgoing SMTP server. Not too worried about that.

But when i tried to email a zipped agent.zip file; i got the following bounce from the recipient's comcast.net:

The key line is:

Diagnostic-Code: smtp; f8b0:400d:c04::1a: 552 5.7.0 message content

Hi John,

I would rather not recommend sending an .exe file via email, even a zipped one. Better to just put it online on a website or drop in the Dropbox public folder and share the link.
